I recently visited Salt Yard to catch up with a friend who had been there before and highly recommended it. I entered off Goodge Street, glad to be in out of the rain, and was shown to a seat upstairs towards the front window. The atmosphere was buzzing and it wasn't long before my friend arrived and we could get into some serious foodie discussions as we perused the menu.

Salt Yard, Goodge Street

We decided to order a bottle of red (naturally - prices range from 20-ish right through to 40 for a highly recommended but beyond the realms of the night's wallet contents Rioja) and start with a couple of dishes to share so that we could pace ourselves.

We sat at the third table from your left - great spot near the window and the bar.

After much deliberation, we decided on the baked aubergine, spinach and grazelema gratin and the carpaccio of scallops, avocado with roast coral and ginger dressing. This was followed by a trio of manchego cheese and the trout and fennel pate by which time we'd finished the bottle of wine.

Carpaccio of scallops - delicious.

Being in a Spanish establishment, it would have been impolite not to partake of one of the best indulgent treats on the planet - churros, with Valrohna dipping sauce no less! Delicious - although not my all time favourite.

I am relatively new to this part of London so I was delighted to find Salt Yard so close to Goodge Street tube station - meaning a quick trip home on the Northern Line. This buzzy Mediterranean mecca definitely goes into my little black foodie book. But be careful - it's not open on Sunday and I'm told it pays to reserve your table. This is not a place where dropping in will work in your favour.
